“‘That means if we don’t find another witch to perform the spell again, then by Saturday at midnight . . . We’ll turn back to animals,’ Beau whispered.”
While the threat of turning back into an animal is something that looms over the Beastie’s in Grim Lovelies, we couldn’t help but be reminded of another character that changes into an animal. Being Goblin King comes with all sorts of magical powers, but sometimes a character needs to enter the mortal world and mess around with humans, kidnap babies, spy on beautiful girls, and whatnot. For this, Jareth morphs into a Barn Owl. The Labyrinth clock has 13 hours on it, not 12. As the famous song lyrics from the movie go, “It's only forever, not long at all."
